has an origin more serious than mere
caprice or love of uniformity. It Is the
kulgo of service; a survival of tho
primitive custom of mutilating slaves
lo prevent their escape, or Insure their
recognition and recapture If they did
escape- The Mosaic law made tho
mutilation more merciful than It prol
ably had Won previously. Tho printer
mode of re-engaging a servant Is set
forth In Kxodtis, xx., (1: "Then hU
master shall bring him unto the judges;
he shall also bring him to tho disir, or
until the doorpost; and his master shall
Wro hit ear through with an awl, and
ho shall serve him forever."
Ah manners grew milder, even this
slight mutilation was discarded, and
shaving the Ward or the head was re
sorted to for marking servants. Fierce
and long was the controversy that
raged In these Islands during tho sixth
and seventh centuries, even to sheddiiiL'
of Mood, as to the right manner In
which priests servants of tho Lord
hoiihl shave their heads. At this dis
tance of time there scorns as much to
be said for St Columba's frontal ton-tire-
from ear to ear across tho brow-
as for that favored at Home, which
eventually carried the day tho coronal,
on the summit of the head.
The Woman Catholic priesthood has
not yielded to tho lax practice of tho
ago. and It Is not many yearn since any
Protestant clergyman of these Islands,
